A corollary of the mass movement to the cloud is the growth of "as-a-service" solutions. The flexibility of the commercial model and the shift of capital cost to operating cost are the most obvious benefits. Other key advantages are the ability to flex service delivery — up or down — in anticipation of changed market conditions and/or user requirements, the immediacy of access to functional innovations and revisions and perhaps most importantly, the overall acceleration of time-to-value.
This infographic traces the phenomenal growth of the cloud, outlines the benefits of as-a-service solutions, and provides recommendations for efficiently making this important transition.
